We were commended to the Lord’s work, particularly to Chile, in 1965. We lived in several cities in the central zone for the first few years, but in 1975 we settled in the southern city of Osorno, where there was no assembly work. After holding Gospel meetings and children’s efforts in various places, including our home, Halls were built and assemblies commenced in Osorno and Rio Negro (a nearby town). Ernest’s teaching ministry took him to various South American countries, particularly Argentina, Bolivia and Venezuela. He also published about 10 books on subjects from Scripture, as well as a quarterly ministry magazine. In 2014 he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease (which has since been changed to PSP, or Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, a Parkinsonian type disease). Finally in 2017 it was necessary to return permanently to the U.S. to be near family. We now reside in Hickory, NC.
